Green Team

The Hope Green Team is built upon the Christian mission that our responsibility is to manage the Earth in a way that is fruitful to the present and is dedicate to safeguarding our resources for future generations.

Our sustainability committee brings together students, faculty and staff from departments and offices all around campus. This helps to ensure a wide exposure to new ideas and application of sustainable practices around the college.
